Re “2 horses euthanized, 1 harm at Del Mar” (Nov. 11): What’s it going to take to position an finish to horse racing? What number of extra horses want to die? Even with all of the “new protection practices,” horses proceed to die.

Del Mar is a part of the issue. This observe isn’t any other than some other racetrack. So long as horses are being raced, horses will die it doesn’t matter what form of protection protocols there are.

Those horses have lifelong accidents led to through intensive, intense coaching. Then racing day comes and their legs destroy, their hearts prevent or their lungs explode. The sport has modified now and after all our flesh pressers are being attentive to the intense animal abuse.

It’s time to ban horse racing.

The U-T welcomes and encourages group discussion on necessary public issues.

Race horse teacher Peter Miller’s callous feedback declaring that public outcry about injured and death racehorses is in accordance with political convictions is just fallacious. He clearly feels threatened through the lack of his activity must horse racing be outlawed in California or national.

If you happen to care in regards to the 1000’s of captive horses in California and throughout this nation who suffer for a $2 guess, please touch Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Gov. Gavin Newsom to inspire them to talk for those who can’t talk. Sufficient is sufficient.
